Linea dei Sensi
Wine is a joy and exaltation of bodily sensations, and this is why the Senses Line was born, which includes the monovarietal" wines in purity.
The whole line is followed by verses of illustrious poets, translated by Salvatore Quasimodo and is worthy of some works by Salvatore Incorpora, whose his art was nourished by sculpture, painting, poetry and narrative.
The sacred and the social, the won and the hope, today speak to the heart of man in a universal meaning, through the theme of wine.
From an average calculated and clayey soil like San Michele di Ganzaria, the Petit Verdot is born which manages to express all the wonders of the forest, with ripe red fruit and spicy notes, with a soft and elegant taste
